Alcatel-Lucent nmake Product Builder - Eclipse Plugin 0.5.0 Guide Alcatel-Lucent

Tips and Tricks

Unexpected Builds

Symptom: Builds are launched unexpectedly during project creation.

Tip: Turn off Project > Build Automatically before creating a new CDT C/C++ project. Otherwise, Eclipse will kick off a build immediately upon project creation and after resource saves, probably not what you want.

Install step fails in sample project

Symptom: In the supplied sample project, nmake is unable to locate or create the include install directory during the install step.

Tip: Check that the ProjDirPath variable is set to the project root directory on the generated nmake line, which should be visible in the Console view build log after a build. If ProjDirPath is not set, it may mean that a resource in the sample project had not been selected prior to launching the build.

Unable to suppress build after a clean

Symptom: The Start a build immediately checkbox does not appear in the Project > Clean... dialog.

Tip: Verify that Project > Build Automatically has been turned off.

Unable to update from 0.3.2

Symptom: Update manager does not find updates to initial version 0.3.2.

Tip: The plugin id changed from com.alu.nmake.cdt to com.alcatel_lucent.nmake.cdt after release 0.3.2. Because of this you must explicitly uninstall the release 0.3.2 plugin and then install the new plugin as a new feature.
